    3-7" for Algona area, which is where I'm near. I'm hoping it stays snow instead of moving north and putting us in the snow/rain/ice mix. I could live without the forecasted winds for Wednesday, but we can't do much about that.

    Why do we believe any forecasts?

    A couple days out the forecasts are usually pretty solid. Farther than that they can have more margin of error but still valuable in helping people plan for possible issues.

    This is 2019. If you ask "Am I ****** or not?", it's best to assume you're ******.

    So I get to drive back from South Dakota Tuesday afternoon and turn around to head to Minneapolis Wednesday morning. Sounds like fun.

    I'm hoping with where the temps are that it will be a wet enough snow that the strong winds won't actually pick up much snow on Wednesday.

    Looking at the updated map, I'd just change plans.

    Because more than a week out they were able to predict a major system moving through right before Thanksgiving, and they were right?

    It’s not as good as people are willing to pay. I sold 1 bottle and bought a new fat bike.
